Meet Margaret

Margaret says, “”When you are able to look in the mirror, and accept a seemingly unpleasant fate with grace and gratitude, your life will open, inviting a multitude of rich and abundant blessings.  I would not trade this (Alopecia) family for the world.

You have taught me how to live, love, and evolve.  That, with an open heart, anything is possible.  You inspire me everyday.  Thank you.”

Margaret began acting in musicals at the age of eight in Bethesda, Maryland under the mentorship of beloved acting instructor, Judy White. Her love of classical music came from listening to the concert recordings of her grandmother (Lola McFadin) playing with Van Cliburn.

A cousin of famed Director/Writer Joshua Logan, Margaret knew from an early age that she wanted to pursue a career in musical theater and dreamed of being on Broadway. Her parents both amateur musicians playing guitar and piano exposed Margaret to the music which inherently became so important to her.

At thirteen, her mother agreed to sign her on for voice lessons. The weekly lessons continued until Margaret went on to college studying with teachers from Catholic University, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and Julliard.

Margaret has appeared on Sex and the City (Season 6, Episode 93), SpiderMan, and The Believer.  Most recently, Margaret was the stand-in for Academy Award winner, Tilda Swinton, in We Need to Talk About Kevin.

Margaret recently wrote her first Feature Film, Two Spirited, which is currently in development.
